SE SOTD, Thursday, September 28th 2023 Razor : Yaqi Excalibur SE 50mm with a Milano 316 SSP- Mfg 2021>,tame mid range. Simple clamping system, small head parts (I lay base plate over a wash cloth when installing a blade works great). This little affordable razor has found a permanent spot in my weekly razor rotation over the years. Bottom line it just ticks all the boxes off for shaving my beard type it seems. Great stellar comfortable close shave this morning. Blade : Schick proline p30, sharp and smoooth with reasonable longevity. Great match with the Yaqi Excalibur over time it seems. Soap : Cyril R Salter Wild Rose cream, very nice rose fragrance 6/10 scent strength that fades quickly + excellence in lather qualities I have noticed with the CRS creams over the years. Their herbal Sandalwood is excellent also. Brush : Yaqi "Casino clubs""26mm timber wolf synthetic. Excellent lather generator, heavenly luxury cloud like soft tips, gentle splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. This brush was bought on sale and it is one of the best brushes in my harem of brushes, why Yaqi went with the 26mm standard Husky knot is beyond me. I think was a marketing sampler possibly of ten that where made. Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area. Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups. Post shave : Italian Barber=(Razorock) Amici splash with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless). Results : or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers= Had a stellar close comfortable shave this morning with my Yaqi Excalibur with a Schick proline blade. Have some great shaves!
